Summary:

A Kinsey Millhone mystery. . .

Good and bad things seem to be coming in threes for Kinsey Millhone: on her thirty-third birthday she moves back into her renovated apartment, gets hired to find an elderly lady supposedly living in the Mojave Desert by herself, and makes the top of ex-con Tyrone Patty's hit list. It's the last that convinces Kinsey even she can't handle whoever's been hired to whack her, and she gets herself a bodyguard: Robert Dietz, a Porsche-driving P.I. who takes guarding Kinsey's body very seriously. With Dietz watching her for the merest sign of her usual recklessness, Kinsey plunges into her case. And before it's over, she'll unearth the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal and, in the process, come fact-to-face with her own mortality. . . .

    A good listen as always but I have enjoyed others in the series more. Judy Kaye is a great reader.

    This is another great Grafton book. I really enjoy listening to the books of this series and think that Judy Kaye has one of the most enjoyable voices for audio books. I would definitely recommend the alphabet murders to anyone that likes female detective stories.

    I always love a Kinsey Milhone and the narrator of this series is especially good. The abridgment seems choppy, though. These books would be so much better in an unabridged version but even this short it is still a great listen.

    It was okay. Nice little twist at the end but the book didn't engage my senses enough. Other books such as Eragon or the Davinci Code cause me to want to listen in my car, at work, at the gym and even when I am just at home. However this story and maybe even the story teller just didn't seem to move me. Very forgettable.
